of folks were expecting president obama to come out and announce that they had decided to move forward unilaterally move forward without congressional approval, and that's not what he said. he said he has decided that military action is the right next step but that he is going to put the matter to a vote in congress, and of course we know in the past several days, more and more members of congress have been saying that they want a vote, and they think they deserve a vote before president obama actually launches any type of military strike, so it appears as though those voices have won in this case, so this will be put to a congressional vote. a couple things that stood out to me, craig. president obama saying that the chairman of the joint chiefs told him he is ready to move forward with military action, and that it's not necessarily time sensitive, that if this occurs in a month they would still be able to weaken assad's military capabilities. so that is one of the things that stood out. another thing, you didn't hear president obama say he was going to call congress back right now, a

and terrorism. this is a statement. i'll read it to you, congressman. president obama is advocating his responsibility as commander in chief and undermining the authority of future presidents. the president does not need congress to authorize a strike on syria. if assad's use of chemical weapons against civilians deserves a military response, and i believe it does, and if the president is seeking congressional approval, then he should call congress back into special session at the earliest date. the president doesn't need 535 members of congress to enforce his own red line. you totally disagree with peter king. tell our viewers quickly, because we're out of time, congressman rangel, why he's wrong and you're right. >> peter king i thought was on the right track when he said the president should call back the congress. but this whole idea that he doesn't need 535 -- at least i hope he's saying we need the majority. to an extent of what his belief is, it's 135th of the united states congress. so i respect him or anybody else who believes the president is authorized to attack another count

. is it fair to say that president obama is not going to recall congress to seek some type of similar measure before proceeding? >> first of all, i don't want to engage in speculation about a course of action that's not been decided upon. when the president has an announcement to make, he'll make it. as this process is undertaken, we're consulting directly with house and senate leaders in congress. we're consulting with the leadership of relevant committees and other members who have a keen interest in this manner. i think you've seen that documents by some members who have spoken to it. that process will continue. we think it's important that the consultation process take place in a matter like this at such gravity. we're also as we have made clear engaging with our international partners as a substantial list of communications that the secretary of state has had and the president has had consultations with canadian prime minister harper today and in recent days with british prime minister. i would anticipate the president will continue to make calls to his counterparts throughout the week.

be leaving for the same reasons that bill daly left as chief of staff of the obama administration. those jobs during the obama years become almost secondary when it comes to economic policy because the president leans so heavily. she is the power center of this administration both from a domestic policy standpoint and a domestic economic policy standpoint so those jobs become less important in the scheme of things. not unimportant, but less important. cheryl: charlie, thank you for calling in with that huge breaking news. charlie gasparino, our senior correspondent with some market moving news on the administration. we want to check in on the market. we are actually session lows right now. lauren simonetti on the floor of the new york stock exchange. syria is the situation, are there any other factors we are talking about on the floor this morning? lauren: syria is the talk right now. we are about 20 points away from session lows for the dow, which is actually the best performing major market right now. the broader market down by 1%. if you look at the volume, it is a little bit more than it

notes, you said a missile attack would only make president obama look weaker. why? >> if it's just a missile attack to signal open session to chemical weapons and assad goes ahead with future chemical weapons attacks, then that makes the u.s. look irrelevant. so it has to be strong enough to deter a future use, strong enough to send a signal not only to damascus but to iran that red lines, once they're made and, you know, we can discuss the wisdom of making a red line before you no ewhat you will do to enforce it, but once the red lean is out there, it's important not only in terms of the syrian crisis but in terms of the looming iran nuclear standoff. >> so what are you advocating exactly then? if missiles are not going to be strong enough, what would be? >> i think it has to be, well, the administration has boxed itself in on this attack. but this attack only makes sense if it's a part of a broader strategy to act sell rate the fall of assad, to strengthen moderate opposition groups within the opposition coalition, because it doesn't make sense to overthrow assad if al qaeda affi
